The Wiki-fication of the world

Chicago Tribune – “I have a friend — a librarian — who is steadfastly anti-Wikipedia. I’m sure part of it is that she feels her traditional role as a guardian of information is threatened. As a teacher, I understand Wikipedia is not an acceptable tool for student research, but, holy cow, is Wikipedia amazing. First, the sheer volume of information is astounding. Second, I am always surprised how accurate, organized and balanced the information is. I go to other sources, but somehow I always end up back at Wikipedia.”
